Mount Beauty is a town in Victoria, Australia. It is in the Alpine Shire local government area. The town was originally built to house construction workers from the Kiewa Hydroelectric Scheme in the late 1940s.

A hang gliding competition, the Bogong Cup, is held in January each year.

Mount Beauty is a launching point for trips to the ski resort, Falls Creek and to the Bogong High Plains. To this end there are several ski hire shops, several eateries and a bus company doing daily trips to and from the end of the road at Falls Creek.

This town also has great views to the mountains, such as Mount Bogong and the peaks that are of interest to so many tourists coming through the town.
